Warning: Spoilers for the Season 5 premiere of The Masked Singer on Fox.
Fox’s The Masked Singer just released its Season 5 premiere and the contestants dazzled the panelists with the singing and the costumes. Between a Robopine, Raccoon, Seashell and more, this season is raising the stakes. At the end of the night, Snail was sent home and his identity shocked everyone. Now the contestant behind the mask is talking about what wearing the costume was really like.
When the mask was finally taken off Snail, there seemed to be no one under it and everyone was surprised. However, two small green hands made their appearance and out popped Kermit the Frog, the most famous guest on The Masked Singer ever, according to Ken Jeong. The beloved Muppet spoke to EW about the big costume:
Kermit the Frog has had an illustrious career for over half a century, including being one of the original main Muppet characters on Sesame Street. He has appeared in nearly every Muppet production and has made several guest appearances in various other shows and movies including Good Luck Charlie, 30 Rock and a voice appearance in Amphibia. The Muppet said when the opportunity to be on The Masked Singer arose, he “leaped” at the chance:
When the Snail’s identity was revealed, panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke as well as guest host Niecy Nash and everyone in the audience were clearly not expecting to see Kermit the Frog as the one underneath the mask. However, the giant teddy bear in Snail’s package was a clue to Kermit the Frog’s best friend, the lovable Fozzie Bear. McCarthy said that he may be the first to go home but he will be the one they will never forget.
The best part about The Masked Singer is guessing who is singing under that mask and chanting “Take it off” right before a reveal. While it’s sad Snail didn’t last more than one episode this season, it’s hard to believe anyone would have guessed who was under there. Now it’s time to guess who everyone else is! The Masked Singer airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
